About the Festival
The first Lino Lakes Blue Heron Days Festival was held in 2004. Blue Heron Days was so named because Lino Lakes has the second largest Blue Heron rookery in the state. The Blue Heron has been the city logo for many years, symbolizing the area's beauty and natural amenities.
A highlight of the festival is a parade at 11 a.m. on Saturday on Lake Drive, starting at Target and ending just short of Main Street. The parade has become more popular each year, with celebrity grand marshals and guest emcees, floats, local organizations and businesses, and the Lino Lakes Ambassadors riding on the city float. Other popular events include the street dance on Friday and Saturday night at Millers on Main, Quad Chamber Business Expo, American Legion Family Picnic, YMCA Splash and Dash, Lions Petting Zoo, Centennial Fire Open House, Blue Out 5K Fun Run and much more! The coronation is held on Sunday of that weekend to crown the next yearâ€™s Miss Lino Lakes Ambassadors. Each year something new and different brings families out to enjoy the festivities.
